The repertoire in this album was selected from the digital collection provided by the research group APHECAB – Collection of Sheet Music Hermelindo Castello Branco. Many of the chosen works were in manuscript form and the musical content was challenging to decipher. We analyzed and edited all these songs.

    The eclecticism of the Brazilian vocal repertoire offers multiple possibilities of pedagogical study and vocal performance. The album provides the phonetic transcription of sung Brazilian Portuguese (BP) and the translation into English. The main objective of the phonetic transcription is to indicate the pronunciation of the language for speakers of other languages. It also helps with lyric diction, bringing attention to the points of articulation and sound production in the vocal tract and promoting the standardization of phoneme emission. The translation of the collection into English facilitates the foreign reader’s understanding of the album’s proposal and the textual content of the songs. We chose to maintain the musical terms in the scores used by the composer. A glossary is provided with definitions of musical and Brazilian Portuguese terms which are used throughout the text and in the poems.

    The songs in this album were composed within a span of about one hundred and fifty years, between 1800 and 1950 approximately. We will therefore limit this panorama of the song to that period. The continuation of the history of Brazilian art song will be saved for the second anthology of songs!
